Japan's Toyama prefecture is an ideal place to discover the simplicity of traditional Japanese culture. The remote mountainous region, located along the West Coast, facing the Sea of Japan, boasts an incredibly diverse range of attractions, from national treasures and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Gokayama village, to contemporary attractions like the popular Tonami Tulip Fair and exciting winter sports, like alpine skiing.

Step 7: MurodoAfter a short break and a sit-down at the Daikanbo observation deck, mainly for posing and photos, we boarded another trolley bus. This time it was a tunneling one through Mt. Tateyama for 4km to Murodo. This trolley bus took 10 minutes. And “whoosh”, after 10 minutes on the trolley bus we were all of a sudden on the other side of the 3015 m high Mt. Tateyama.
Step 9: Toyama CityThe last stage of the Alpine Route is with the cable car down from Bijodaira to Tateyama, which takes 7 minutes. We didn’t spend any time in Tateyama, only waited for the train. You can choose to end your Alpine Route journey here, if you want to sleep in Tateyama (but there are not many options here). From Tateyama we took the train to Toyama (1 hour). We reached Toyama at approximately 7 p.m.The Alpine Route Japan was a very nice trip! It was lovely to breathe in some fresh mountain air again and get to see some breathtaking mountain scenery.
